Content inside <nowiki>, <source>, etc tags should not be altered at Special:PagePreparation

Description:
As seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension%3ALinks&diff=1113386&oldid=1082879, the tool converted a link present inside <nowiki> tags into two-party form (added a pipe).

However, text inserted inside tags like <nowiki>, <source>, etc by the user was intended to be displayed that way and should not be altered.

Hence, not only links, but in general, any text present inside <nowiki> tags should not be altered while preparing the page for translation.

This is important and not so trivial: we also have spacepre, pre, code, source, syntaxhighlight.

We could do this using a custom filter; see the section in the Pygments docs entitled Write your own filter.

I dont understand how that could help this task.

How does this have anything to do with SyntaxHighlight?

It also occurs with text in <syntaxhighlight>..</syntaxhighlight>.
